Prada S/S 2018

Art / Architecture / Design / Fashion

Miuccia Prada did away with preconceived springtime notions of femininity and florals for spring/summer 2018, instead opting for a punk paradise of empowered females.


Posted May 13th, 2018 By Colby Mugrabi

This season’s standout prints were comic book illustrations created by women cartoonists, covering garments to relay a post-war air of powerful optimism. The collection’s pattern-drenched, full-bodied skirts and masterful overcoats were styled with collared shirts and short-shorts with high socks, suggesting that Prada’s idiosyncratic notions relayed themselves this season in styling and dramatic contrasts. Clusters of bejeweled appliqués sat commandingly on model’s shoulders, while studded shoes, bags and belts were present, in some form, throughout every look. Prada’s militant lineup of females was scattered with odes to 1980s club culture in the show’s loose, pleated dresses and unconventional, thrift-shop-esque pattern mixing – feminine brocades coupled with a cacophony of cartoon-ized animal prints. Flats, kitten heel sling-backs, fanny-packs and the powerful presence of nylon hit Prada’s point home that the future is certainly female, and strong females at that.
